Range: I think I would prefer Dual fuel because every gas oven I have worked with are uneven and don't hold the correct temps. They are pretty expensive though. Why are most commercial range's all gas? Does anyone LOVE their gas oven? I need 6 burner's for sure and I'll be grilling outdoors so no grill needed. Maybe a salamander-although what are they most used for, browning and melting cheese? I've never worked in a kitchen with one and if I have 2 ovens, I should be able to use the broiler, correct? I will have food warmers so I won't really need the ovens during service.
Refrigerator: What brand do you recommend? My kitchen is fairly small and so I'm looking for one without compressor's that are loud and conduct a lot of heat. Are refrigerators okay to buy used or should I go with a new one? I know in WA they have to stay below 41 degrees now too.
Any recommendations for me? (I saw a thread on this but it was very outdated so I thought I would start a new one.)
